This Blog Post is intended to be an organized Teaching about how Human Civilization is changing and the good news about where our USA corner of Civilization is heading as We the People gather in a politically charged Post-COVID World.


It soon becomes necessary to think about the timeline of the activity under consideration. In computers it is the difference between DATE-CURRENT versus DATE-TIMELINE-EVENT.

Day 1

Wednesday, January 1, 2020

  1. What were you doing on that day that you are willing to share in a public blog post? You are starting the story of your life. Day 1 is easy to remember. It is January First in the Year Twenty-twenty.
  2. OBSERVATION: In the domain of optics processed by the human eye the story begins in the blink of an eye. Open your eyelid and light comes in. Close your eyelid and your vision goes from external to internal.
  3. What did you think, say, and do on January First? Use roles like “Mom”, “Dad”, Aunt, Uncle, Sister or Brother when writing your story. Use real first names when they are known and you have something nice to say.
  4. Don’t be mean spirited.
  5. Don’t use bullying, especially when talking to people on the internet
  6. Embellish the story. Think of one nice thing to say about every event participant you want to introduce into the legacy writings of your life, and theirs also, when you give them praise, their public identity or some secret identity if you want to tag them, or their behavior pattern everyone present in a meeting will recognize a “Mister Narcissist” reference who seeks the spotlight at every opportunity. Or “Miss Grumpy”, who apologizes for “needing” her coffee. Introducing hypothetical characters exhibiting some behavioral characteristic can be a nice way to lead into a 1 minute maximum humane lecture with a gentle message.
  7. Everybody learns how to deal with drama and laugh at comedy and appreciate wit and wisdom.
  8. Some people are engaged in life for the fun of it.
  9. Some people like to be the center of attention. Some people do not like to be the Center of Attention and most are in between.
  10. Share the center of attention liberally. Call upon quiet persons by asking them a question. “Alex. What do you think?” If anyone starts to talk over Alex, politely object to the disruption. Alex need a protected minute to speak.
  11. The center of attention is signified by the “Talking Feather” which Mom Helen introduced into our family circle. In those days of old it was a turkey feather. It was passed from hand to hand as a substitute for an eagle feather which Mom used in honor of Native Americans’ spiritual values.
  12. The talking feather is passed gracefully from person to person. Each person has one minute or as decided by the group of the mic time for each to have their their say. Then they “Talking Feather” is handed to the next speaker.
  13. In a modern context, the “Talking Feather” could be a handheld microphone or any available switchable sound point source location.

To the Best of My Ability

One should do things to the best of their ability, with the knowledge they posses. If they lack knowledge, then education is required. The result of their education might include a post at their blog, perhaps to be graded by a parent, guardian, mentor, teacher, coach, or someone else important in the student’s life, who is capable of providing proper guidance to an earnest learner. Education is important to human life. Education in its many dimensions of life comprises one of the great joys of life and sometimes one of life’s greatest sorrows.

It is interesting and fun to hang out with people who are driven to work to the best of their talents, skills, and abilities. Of some people this description it can be said, “I asked for a sip of water, and came away feeling like I had been drinking from a firehouse” It is a good behavior to thank people for the demonstrating the best of their abilities. Especially, praise your children for demonstrations of their abilities.

Unto Parents it is said, “to the best of your ability, teach your children, and often praise them for their many good works.” Express gratitude and love and be treated the same. Practice the “Golden Rule and do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.

Lyno Carbonic with Golden Rule quote spoken by paternal grandmother upon first meeting.

We Must Keep Our Data Safe

Let us together metaphorically gaze upon the internet social media wasteland. It is filled with big social media sites with millions and billions of users. It always amazes my how they can fit all those users into such a cramped space like a single primary domain name.

I grew up in Montana in the 50’s and 60’s, before Californians started buying up Montana ranches. They started building mansions on lots of prominent overlook spots. Peter Fonda of “Easy Rider” fame owned a place down in Paradise Valley, south of Livingston, Montana. Have a listen to “Born to be Wild” by Steppenwolf.

Single URL Site Costs

It is not unusual for big social media sites to spend millions of dollars per month for the resources the receive from vendors like Amazon Web Services (AWS). This is so “old school” technology deployment.

Distributed Social Network (DSN)

Carbonic sells a twenty-four United States dollars ($24 USD) per month slice of AWS for you that provides what we who sell the system call a Distributed Social Network (DSN)(tm) which is trademarked. Visit this URL to see what Carbonic sells
